Curriculum Change and Innovation

Organization is important in curriculum development because it affects the efficiency of teaching and the degree to which educational changes are brought about in learners. Curriculum organization is regarded as an attempt to overcome the confusion and fragmentation found in many instructional programs. The organization of a school curriculum depends much on the internal and external pressures acting on schools. The relative importance of these various tensions, as perceived by the key school personnel, will manifest as the learning and teaching culture within the institution. Unique patterns of curriculum organization often involve trained personnel, specific teaching and learning materials, and administrative support. This implies that quality school curriculum should be organized to fulfill the expectations of students, parents, teachers, school management, the government, and the community. This chapter elaborates on numerous concepts and models of curriculum organization, and it examines and critically reflects on an array of practices and innovations involved in the organization of the school curriculum. The chapter also glances at some challenges which teachers may encounter in selecting models for curriculum organization.
